the judicial branch is not under the power of the government, of the administration. they have their own laws, and that's what they follow. and we have no interference in that. and the government has paved the way for the highest form of freedom for all people, and you see that comfortably people criticize, people sometimes trespass the borderlines of proper protest, and they insult one another. as a president, i'm in the middle of the people of iran without drawing any borders, without drawing any red lines, and we converse. >> right. but, i mean, this isn't just any protester. i mean, this could be your daughter in the future. she's a daughter of your predecessor. it's a fairly significant moment that she's been imprisoned. do you feel uncomfortable that this lady is in jail? >> translator: let's separate the two topics. the fact whether i'm happy at anyone going to prison? no, never. never. no one should go to prison. but also keep in mind that in any country everyone must be treated equally under the laws. no one must have -- must receive special treatment because of having been a part of
. >> talk about a government reduction. if we could run the government like this. >> steve: from pasta to politic politics. militias. at the same time there are new questions where this investigation is going if anywhere. remember it has been nearly two weeks since the deadly september 11 attack on a u.s. consulate in benghazi. that is where we begin. i'm bill hemmer. good morning to "america's newsroom.". martha: good morning, everybody. i'm martha maccallum. there are still really a lot of unanswered questions. it is still unclear what the libyan government is doing to bring those killers to justice. president obama yesterday telling the u.n. assembly that america will get to the bottom of the murders of chris stevens and the others. >> the attack on civilians in benghazi were attacks on america. there should be no doubt we will be relentless tracking down the killers and bringing them tobill: how possit while order in libya is still unknown? we want to begin our coverage now. greg palkot streaming live out of tripoli. what is the latest on this militia crackdown there, greg? >> repo
. early last year mr. quinn floated the idea that the federal government could bail out, that is the federal government, you, could bail out his state's pension program if illinois' finances took a turn for the worse. critics are pouncing saying states cannot give away big benefit packages and then expect the federal taxpayer to come to the rescue. "the chicago tribune" says the stampede of other states with pension red ink could lead to a federal taxpayer bill of over $2 trillion. that's with a t, and let me tell you, folks, that's just one estimate. others put it between 1 trillion and 25 trillion that we could potentially get to. lou dobbs is host of "lou dobbs tonight" on the fox business network, he's also a syndicated radio host. so governor quinn in illinois can't figure out how to get himself out of these pensions that they've overpromised and feel like they're going to have to underdeliver on, and he's considering making the rest of us pay for them? [laughter] >> he's considering, he's hoping, he's begging, he's wishing. the fact of the matter is governor quinn
that shortly on the big headline getter. >> does the government have responsible to provide health care to the 50 million americans who don't have care today? >> we do provide care. if someone has a heart attack, they don't sit in their apartment and die, we pick them up in an ambulance and take them to the hospital and give them care, and different states have different ways of providing for that care. >> that's the most expensive way to do it. in the emergency room. >> again, different states have different ways of doing that. some provide that care through clinics, some provide the care through emergency rooms. in my state we found a solution that worked for my state. i wouldn't take what we did in massachusetts and say to texas, you have to take the massachusetts model. >> he points to the massachusetts model, that's what he's trying to eliminate by providing universal coverage. it was mitt romney's rational for his own plan back in 2010. here he is back then on msnbc's "morning joe." >> do you believe in universal coverage? >> oh, sure. look, it doesn't make a lot of sense for us t
is entitled to sucssthis country. we don't believe government should help folks who aren't willing to try to help themselves. but we do believe in sothing called opportunity. we do believe in a country where hard work pays off, where responsibility is rewarded, where everyone gets a fair shot and everybody is doing their fair share and everybody plays by the same rules. we believe in america where no matter what you look ke, no matter who you are, no matter where you come from, no matter who you love, u n make it if y. [ cheers and applause ] that's the country i believe in. >>> jim acosta is covering the romney campaign. jim, one of the interesting things back in 2008 in covering president obama, you knew that there was a sense that he could possibly win when people started showing up in virginia. i mean that was really th turning pot. they thought perhaps we have this thing because we've got folks out in virginia. that was making history. that had not happened, a democrat getting that state since 1964. lyndon johnson. you know have an opportunity, the president, i think to do it again.
. this chinese company is a huge company. it's almost entirely owned by the chinese government. in 2005, they tried to take over an oil company based in california. so big chinese, state-run company trying to take over a california company. this is the chinese government, a big business deal like that actually does have national security implications for us as a country. that's the kind of international business deal that's subject to review by something called the committee on foreign investments in the united states. a big committee that reviews this stuff. the treasury secretary heads it up. when that committee was reviewing this deal with, congress went absolutely nuts over it it. in the end, that deal did not go through. that was in 2005. china was not allowed to come in and buy that company. now they are trying good. they are in the process of trying to buy a canadian oil company. but again, the committee on foreign investments in the u.s. has some jurisdiction here because the canadian company does a lot of business in our gulf of mexico. this is a chinese government-owned giant
that government has the responsibility to care for them and believe that they are entitled to health care and housing and you name it. my job is not to worry about those people. >> rush limbaugh is still struggling to find an honest way to defend mit romney's comments on the 47%. >> obama is saying that 47% of the people are not victims. he is putting words in romney's mouth. he is taking it out of context. >> never talked about them being victims. here is what mitt romney actually said. >> quote, there are 47% who are with him dependant upon government who believe that they are victims. today, it was described this way by former democratic governor of ohio at the democratic national convention. >> mitt romney has so little economic patriotism that even this money needs a passport. it is summers on the beaches of the cayman islands and winters on the cloeps slopes of the swi. barack obama is an economic patriot. mitt romney is an out sourcing pioneer. >> here is president obama on economic patriotism today. >> during the campaign season you hear a lot about patriotism. you know what? it i
. on taxes, it is the reverse. romney leads by one. but on government spending, this is really amazing, mitt romney leads by 17 points. does he need to exploit that? >> well, yeah, i think he does. i'm actually amazed it is not bigger. there were 38% of the people polled think that president obama would be better on government spending? i mean, honestly i just don't have any explanation for how those 38% could believe that unless they're government workers. mitt romney should be pushing hard on this question of government spending, debt, deficits and make this much more of an idealogical argument, an idealogical case against the president. he is a big government liberal. he expanded government at every turn. he will expand government further in his second term. gregg: want to put one more graphic poll up for you. most voters, 73%, say they're aware of the 47% comment notoriously made by governor mitt romney. but look at this, 63% think he is right when he argues that too many people in america are dependent on the government. you have to add two numbers together. mostly true, 36%. somewhat t
-- no one thinks that israel is about drop a bomb on tehran. so the difference is this is a government with a record of supporting terror, and look, no one talks about this very much, but if they had a nuclear weapon, there would be two dangers. even if you believe they would never use it, that is, if you believe that they are sane and rational and understand that their country, their civilization, their whole history, would be destroyed if they ever dropped a bomb on someone because everybody would know it, and the retaliation would be incomprehensible, even if you believe that, two bad things will happen if they get a bomb. a lot of their neighbors will get bombs. and the more of these weapons you have hanging around, the more material you've got, the more vulnerable they are to being stolen or sold or simply transferred to terrorists and that brings me to the second point, which is that iran has all these extensive contacts with terrorist groups and even if the government didn't directly sanction it, it wouldn't be that much trouble to get a girl scout cookie's worth of fissile mate
's all there in black and white. i hope the white part doesn't screw it up. >> our government is wiping its-[bleep] with the constitution. >> bill: new study out of the university of new hampshire celebrities saying dumb political stuff are hurting their careers. juliet huddy on that. caution, you where to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. >> bill: i'm birl, thanks for watching us tonight. the status of the presidential race right this moment that's the subject of this evening's talking points memo. this is is an important factor tonight because we are going to tell you straight up where the campaign is at this point in history. no spin, no nonsense. no ideology. two new polls today have r. very good news for president obama. the polling in general continues to be fluid. that is there is a wide discrepancy in the results and most importantly more democrats were polled than republicans so the results are somewhat suspect. first the "the washington post" poll in florida. it has president obama leading romney by 4 points. 51% 47%. the "new york times" poll has obama up b
are dependent upon government, who believe they are victims, who believe that they are entitle to health care, food, to housing. they pay no income tax. >> president obama has no intention of allowing mitt romney to run away from those heavy words, especially in ohio. >> i don't believe we are going to get very far. if we've got leaders who write-off half the nation as a bunch of victims who don't take responsibility for their own lives. let me tell you. i have spent a lot of time in ohio, and i don't meet a lot of victims. i see a lot of hard-working ohioans. >> a new poll shows 54% of mitt romney's words unfavorably and 32% are favorable to what mitt romney had to say. that same poll shows that 61% of americans have an unfavorable opinion of the way mitt romney is running his campaign. that's up 12 points from july. 54% of americans have a favorable opinion of the way mitt romney is running his campaign. that's up 8 points from july. the romney campaign tried to bail out their sinking ship today by handing mitt romney this script. >> too many americans are struggling to find work in today's
to talk about policies and not people. it is it about lower tax less government and economic growth that landlords to jobs. only thing that matters is yobs and who ever can tell them in a swing state. i know how to create them and i will help your family and your kids are going back to work and that is who am win. >> gretchen: that's what every election comes down to. the pocket book. what the governor said is important. does mitt romney understand the people's problems? when he is out there, does he touch them? and this is it all back to messaging. the fren percent thing; is that resonating in people's minds . he need toz get out there and let them know he cares about them. >> brian: president obama is doing a good job making the most of the tape. right now governor casecs approval at fren percent. if you make a governor's council of winning governors that might be the best supporters that bob massey is coming up next. but governor mitt romney can have. talk about what workings. >> gretchen: the other huge key to the economy is it real estate and bob massey trying to help people st

's comments, that 47% of voters won't choose him because they're dependent on the government. >> it's very -- again it's a very frustrating thing because you try so hard to get your message out and you try so hard to let people know, you know, this is a guy that i know cares. this is a guy that cares for the 100%. >> ann romney said her husband's remarks were misinterpreted. >>> take a look at these images. storms on a tear. storm chasers saying at least one tornado has touched down in rural southwestern illinois. the roof of a farm house east of st. louis was ripped to shreds. a tractor was also overturned by the high winds. a number of funnel clouds were spotted in the area but they never reached the ground. and, there were no reports of any injuries. >>> cameras roll as muslim activists spray paint the controversial subway ad. one critics call hateful and racist. suggest enemies of israel are savages. check out this video from "the new york post." >> stop her! stop her! >> stop that. >> mona, stop it. >> what are you arresting me for? what are you arresting me for? >> that's egyptian wo
, the best ideas survive. and then if the federal government wants to implement some of those ideas, that's fine. not by national mandates, but we'll figure it out. it's called federalism. and mitt romney never was able to explain that in a way that paul ryan or, you know, a lot of other conservatives could have explained it in two or three seconds. yes, i did that in massachusetts, but let me tell you something. what works in massachusetts doesn't work in michigan, doesn't work in mississippi, doesn't work in minnesota. we've got 50 different states, and let's have experimentation. let's have competition. let's have legislative laboratories and see what suits each state's residents the best. he missed that. he could have explained that away in january in iowa and could have been talking about this bill for the past eight, nine months in an excited, positive way. another thing, steve ratner, i want to go to you on this specifically because you talked -- yesterday we talked to governor ed rendell who said that he was so impressed with mitt romney when he went up to massachusetts. and mitt
"fast and furious." thousands of additional guns found in mexico tracked back to the u.s. government. dozens of them believe to be used in violent crimes. >> who is going to pay for this? >> are military voters being treated fairly? >> it's really shocking, but most of the fingers point straight to the pentagon. >> mu afghanistan policy questions. >> terrorism has not gone away. it has increased. >> brit hume's analysis of the president's economic message. arapahoe county is largely suburban area southeast of denver, home to aerospace engineers and business managers and other professionals. there are some very affluent areas but for the most part it's the upper tier of the middle class. in 2008, barack obama carried this county by more than 35,000 votes. four years before that, george w. bush carried it by more than 9,000. the unemployment rate here is the national average. but it is below the state unemployment rate. another interesting stat about arapahoe county, 54% of the registered voters are women. one of the widest gender gaps in any county in colorado. which is why the obama
? is restriction not one purpose of progressive taxation? is not most of what government does, from agriculture subsidies to subsidized student loans to entitlements, the restriction of well the from one cohort or region to another? thank you george will. steve, i've been trying to explain that to mitt romney that every form of taxation is restriction. i, too, would love to hear him called on that one. >> yeah. if we're talking about the whole restriction in this debate tomorrow night, i think it's a symptom of a broader problem for mitt romney and that is we're basically talking about the stuff that he's been talking about to appeal to the republican base. the idea that obama is a restrictioni restrictionist, this is something that has emerged within the base of the republican party that animates them but we have seen that for four years. that image of obama does not have resonance with the swing voters. so romney has been pitching that to the base and he continues to talk about it and his campaign continues to put it out there. if you're talking about that in the debate you're not winning ove
's about the cost of health care rising, about government's role in health care, those are concerns. and whoever looks nice in these things or talks nice doesn't matter so much as what the substance and the takeaway is. because the next morning people are still going to be concerned around their kitchen table, what affects american families. are their kids going to have a future? do they have jobs? is their economy growing -- >> i get that. but also, as you know, the whole point of televised debate, there is a measure of how did you look? how did you seem? did you seem presidential? did you seem aggressive? did you seem like the underdog? did you -- did you flub? did you stutter? all those things, too, in addition to the specifics of policy and the actual facts that will be discussed, are also important. right? >> well, soledad, i think it means a lot to people on television. i worked in television for many years, too. certainly that is the chatter that many times people want to bring up to the public. it still comes down to this point of what did someone say, not just how did they
't believe government should be helping people who refuse to help themselves. but we do believe in something called opportunity. we do believe that hard work should pay off. we do believe that in america everybody gets a fair shot and everybody is doing their fair share and everybody is playing by the same set of rules. we believe that no matter who you are, or what you like, or what your last name is or who you love, you can make it if you try. that's t country i believe in. that's what i have been fighting for for four years, and that's why i'm running for a second term as president of the united states. sfwroo president obama there in bowling green, ohio. want to dip in to mitt romney now who is also in ohio. this is out of bedford heights. let's listen in. >> because people haven't got the skills that they need to fit those jobs and so he is concerned, as i'm cocerned, to make sure that our people have the skills they need to succeed. we have 47 different federal government training programs, and they report to eight different agencies. they spend $18 billion on these programs, but too o
's tax rate 20%. cut and dry, 20% rate cut. but, to protect the government's revenue stream, they would have to kill certain deductions and certain loopholes, but they won't be specific, won't say which ones those would be. here is congressman ryan, he starts by trumpeting the tax rate cut. >> lowering tax rates by broadening the tax base works. and you can -- >> but i have to -- >> no. >> but you haven't given me the math. i don't have the -- it would ta me too long to go through all the math. >> too long to go through the math, he says. but ryan did go on to hint, didn't promise, but he hinted that a romney administration would look at tax loopholes enjoyed by the wealthy. here's that. >> when you close a tax write-off or tax shelter for a higher income person, more of their income is subject to taxation so you can lower tax rates. that's where we begin. where we go is by denying those deductions and loopholes to higher income people, which allows us to lower tax rates for everybody across the board and still afford important preferences for the middle class taxpayers. >> there you ha
the netanyahu government in particular. but i think what's really driving obama right now is he doesn't want anything to happen before november 6th. he doesn't want to meet with any world leaders who might say something off script. he doesn't want to meet with bibi netanyahu and risk another blowdown just before the election. he'd just as soon go through the motions and hope the rest of the world takes a nap for the next six weeks. on september 11th we had a tragedy in banghazi, and security threats to our embassy in cairo. that's the kind of intrusion into the well-oiled obama campaign machinery that he doesn't want to see. >> greta: well, a tweet coming out of government press office gpo israel read something like this. it says, israel official, obama doesn't give a same sense clinton did that he'll be there in things go bad. certainly sounds like if over in israel, among some people in israel, that they have very big doubts about president obama. >> well, they should. look, i think obama fears -- at this moment, i think obama fears an israeli military strike against iran's nuclear weapons
: again, that was the first time that the words "terrorist attack" were uttered by a government official, and it came a week after they had already confirmed al-qaeda's involvement, and it was that statement that boxed the white house into a bit of a corner. the next day, jay carney reluctantly had to say this. >> felt badly about what happened in banghazi, it was a terrorist attack. >> sean: mark it down, september 20th was the day that everyone got on the same page and finally acknowledged what we all knew to be true, this was not about a youtube video or movie trailer. not exactly. the confusion, the lies from the composconfusion from the white , they continued. >> we don't know yet. we'll continue to investigate this. >> what happened in banghazi was a terrorist attack. >> then i heard hillary clinton say that it was an act of terrorism. is it? what do you say? >> well, we're still doing an investigation. it was a crude and disgusting video, sparking outrage throughout the muslim world. >> it was a terrorist attack. >> sean: now when we first began our investigation right here on thi
talked about it indicated he might not know even which part of the government is supposed to fix a problem like that. and he still can't bring himself to talk about what he would do as commander in chief. he still can't bring himself to talk about the war that we are still in that is now producing new veterans every day and is due to keep doing that for another couple of years. in any other election year, with any other candidate who was more capable of holding his own on this issue, we would be having a debate on this issue. we would be having a big national debate on this subject right now. because it very obviously needs debating. "wired" magazine today published this internal assessment from the u.s. military in afghanistan. and it shows sort of inadvertently what the effect has been of the big obama troop surge in the war. in 2009, after he was inaugurated, and there was a summertime surge of violence and attacks in afghanistan, president obama took several months in 2009 to do an intensive review of american strategy in the war. you'll remember that he announced that the en
. he is -- got a socialistic view on the, you know, the economy, the government, the whole nine yards. um, if he had his way, we would be a socialistic country. okay, really do. pay attention to fox news. >> a volunteer for the clay county republican party in florida made a series of calls on behalf of her preferred can't. one of those calls got caught on an answering machine and got played on a local radio station and that got into the st. augustine record and got picked up on gawker and now this is part of the romney campaign messaging, too, just like the yacht thing. the leader of the organization said the volunteer was off script while making those remarks. you think? joining me is chris hayes. thank you for being here. i want to ask you about the obama care decision specifically. so romney decided to run as the most anti-obama care guy in the whole world for most of the primaries. starting last month he started to shift and say i'm glad to be known as the grandfather of this. this is one of the ways i want you to know i was a compassionate person because i did romney care in my s
. >> the new government there has to investigate it or let us investigate it. they probably won't. and they got to get to the bottom of this and find who did this and treat them as murderers. >> we carry the water for nato on this. if we are going to be honest about this we need to dial this back and see how you we got here and the fact is now america is being blamed for what is should have been a group operation. we now have enemies we in talled a government we don't know who these people are. we obviously cannot trust them and yet we put our people in the middle of that. >> geraldo: doesn't that reflect on president obama's polyvis-a-vis libya, maybe the entire arab world? >> i think this was a bipartisan betrayal. democrats and republicans said we should go in and invade this country. he had his friends as well. and that left a bad taste in a lot of people's mouths. i want to get to the bottom of this so we have no more dead americans and no more dead libyans. >> two things occurred here. one is we didn't do anything initially. we were tied down to two wars that are very unpopular. second wh
moved around or utilized. >> reporter: concerns about the weapons. recent bombs of government buildings in damascus and stepped up fighting all underscoring the rebels are taking the fight to the regime's power centers. a senior administration official tells cnn that president obama's red line on syria's chemical and biological weapons is all about the potential use of those weapons and the latest intelligence shows that there is no evidence that is about to hap aen. deb, victor. >> barbara starr, thank you so much. we will take you to the region live for more on this story coming up in just a few minutes. >>> president obama spoke with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu over the phone for about 20 minutes yesterday. the white house reaffirmed his commitment to israel security and agreed they must prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapon. the president has been criticized for not meeting with netanyahu in person. netanyahu has expressed frustration with the u.s. for not taking a more aggressive stance on iran. the u.s. is relying on diplomacy and sanctions. >>> and shortly afte
with a previous criminal conviction unless they apply and are granted rights restoration by the government. in a column for the nation this week, one of my guests wrote about one of those states, florida. you have heard about florida before. in florida where mixed messages to former felons have left many with misunderstanding about their voting status. brentich brentin mock rights this. br brentin is still here. >> florida is the felony des enfranchisement of the nation. especially african-americans. a quarter are affected by these la laws. many are eligible to vote. they have gone through the process to have their rights restored. it is the state's obligation to notify these people when they get out of jail that now you are able to vote. due to the transient nature of people when they get out of jail, their address changes. so the state has sent out letters to the formerly incarcerated saying, you are eligible to vote. almost 20,000 came back as undeliver believe. >> that confusion alone if you have a former felony conviction, you don't want to go in and present yourself as a voter with t
't even try to dodge a question. he just said this. listen. >> as a government -- >> is there a misconception? >> you get to ask the questions you want. i get to give the answers i want. fair enough. >> all right. so why have moderators. just make statements. don't ask? i would imagine maybe there are people who say, all right, right on, mitt romney. did he get points for honesty or getting points taken away clearly for not even caring about the question. >> so they all do this and they're all trained to do this. what's interesting about this clip is mitt romney's honesty where he say this is the philosophy i have. you know, henry kissinger used to come to press conferences and say, who has questions for my answers, and that's a very -- that's what people are coached to do. what's unusual is mitt romney actually ar titiculating that. >> when we sit around and watch and someone says, he dodged the question, do you care for the most part? >> from our experiments we find that for the most part viewers don't notice, and that's because the answers are usually similar
